KDS VS-195e -- Black lines on screen?


I was having problems getting my resolution up past 800x600. I resolved that issue by changing the default depth to 16 in XF86Config. However, when I use depth=16, independent of the resolution, I get little, horizontal black lines every millimeter or so on my screen. They are fairly non-instrusive, but after 20 minutes use (give or take five minutes), I get a horrible headache from them and my eyes will begin to burn if I continue with the lines on screen. I've switched back to depth=24 now, but I'm kinda sick of using 800x600. Under windows on the same hardware, I'm able to achieve 1024x768 or higher without a problem. Any ideas as to how to get rid of the little lines?

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
